An area man witnessed the death of the entire cast of CNBC's late morning program shortly after it was announced the Enron jury verdict would come in at noon.
"They got really excited. And then more excited. And then they sort of just exploded," a witness said.
Others were unlear exactly what happened.
"I watch with the volume down. I thought maybe there was an attack or something."
As it turns out, the announcement near 11 am EST that the Enron verdict would be declared at noon proved absolutely lethal to the staff of the business news program.
"The buildup really was too much," a medical specialist said.
Spontaneous combustion is rare among television news program staff members but not entirely unheard of.
